Clement Salvadori, RiderMagazine. Known in BMW circles as the "King of the Alps," John Hermann bought his first bike in 1960. Since then he has clocked over 1,000,000 miles, many of them on his biannual trips to Europe to explore every nook and cranny that might possibly have a twisty road.

An important update to his very popular first edition, Hansen's enthusiasm for exploration comes through in this full-color, fully-detailed tribute and guide to the great roads of America's Pacific Northwest. Both visitors to the region and lifetime locals will enjoy and learn from the 30+ trips that Hansen has planned and perfected. Designed from top to bottom for motorcyclists, this new second edition includes topographical maps for each trip, specific directions, and tips on the best places to eat, sleep, and visit. Hansen guides motorcyclists through the areas around Seattle and Portland, up and down the coats of Washington, Oregon, and northern California, around the volcanos of Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Hood, and Mt. Ranier, across the desert of Oregon, out to the San Juan Islands, and over the border into parts of British Columbia. Riders will see everything from the most interesting places in the region's history, to the hills, inlets, islands, and valleys that make the American Northwest a favorite among motorcycle enthusiasts.

This book is chuck full of pertinent information and I believe he covers both states completely. However, at times I got the impression the author was writing for Hallmark Cards. Some of his descriptions sound more like prose borrowed from an English lit class.
Vikus
Great book! I had already layed out a preliminary route, and this just confirmed the route was good with additional sightseeing information.
Skrimpak
Great info on tides. Thorough, in depth, detailed on each ride. Well worth it!
Nidora
this was a gift, and the receiver has referred to this book several times and planned several trips all ready.
It's so easy
From the title and the various reviews I expected this to show rides from all of the Pacific Northwest. By all definitions Northern California where I live is part of the Pacific Northwest. This book does not cover a single ride in Northern California. It stops at Oregon. I was looking forward to plotting out rides I could go on from my house, as well as further routes. There are literally hundreds of beautiful rides in Northern California, especially the Northern California coast but this book doesn't even mention them.

My husband has had so much fun reading this book. Author is down to earth in his descriptions. Great read.

I very much enjoyed reading this book and did so with the intent of touring in the region in a years time. As someone who reads a lot periodical moto-journalism and ride reports from individuals in the online motorcycling community, I appreciate an author with literary skills and command of the English language. Mr. Hansen is clear about his riding and touring style - 2-up, pavement biased, most rides doable in a long weekend out of Portland, OR, preference for dining out and reasonable motels, with focus on taking the time to enjoy the scenery from off the bike as well as on.

Even if that's not my exact profile, much of the routing, suggestions, and advice are well worth the cover price and time to read. Eventually, I'll get to some of those places and be thankful to have a useful reference for routes, sites, eats, and lodging.
I live in the Pacific Northwest and thought I knew the best places to ride. This book has opened up new routes for me in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. The author has written the story in such a way to make it a great read as well as a first-rate source of travel information.

Two of the restaurants he recommended no longer exist since Bruce tends to seek out the small, family run places.
